Solid Blue fans are setting new records as they camp out for Big Blue Madness tickets.

They are reportedly packed into about 650 tents waiting for Saturday morning's ticket distribution.

UK says it's an all-time high for the annual tradition.

The wait for tickets for the Kentucky Wildcats first, open practice of the season attracts Solid Blue fans from across the state.

Control cards were passed out Friday afternoon.

They serve as placeholders for Saturday's ticket giveaway.

And with so many people at tent city, some might not end up with tickets.

Big Blue Madness is Friday, October 18th.
